Agonizingly dull Deafula.
20 November 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

The story of "Deafula" focuses on Steve Adams,a young theology student who just happens to turn into a vampire from time to time,but has no memory of doing so after the fact.After a chat with a friend who is investigating the bloodless corpses turning up around town,Adams begins to have flashbacks to his childhood-including one scene in which his bloodlust causes him to rip out the throat of his puppy.Having previously believed he had just been an unusually anemic youngster and the son of a simple minister these memories prompt Adams to investigate his past;he finds that he is actually the son of Count Dracula himself."Deafula" is a perfect cure for insomnia.It's silly and pretentious flick with plenty of psychotronic weirdness.The special effects are bad and the action moves at snail's pace.4 deafulas out of 10.
